The time of year is a major influence on people's level of activity. Is located near the Tropic of Cancer, usually the city of Aswan is hot and dry nearly all the time, with average daily temperatures from 23 to 30°C and in the winter to a searing 38 to 54°C over summer. We recommend late autumn and spring are perfect times to visit, being less crowded than the peak winter period, yet not so enervating as summer, when long siestas, cold showers and air-conditioning commend themselves, and the number of tourists dwindles.
